Anthony's father was an immigrant from Mazatlán, Mexico, who helped build Anthony's childhood home in Moorpark, California, through sweat equity in its construction as part of a Habitat for Humanity-type program. Anthony learned the value of hard work and helping others from his father's example.
When starting his family, Anthony worked several odd jobs, including pest control, sales, providing financial planning, tax preparation, insurance, and investment services - while also taking college courses at night. After much hard work, he earned an associate degree and later a bachelor's degree in business management. Anthony went on to earn a law degree from the J. Reuben Clark Law School at Brigham Young University. While in law school, he served as president of the Student Bar Association, class president, and the managing editor of a public law journal and lead editor of an education law journal.

Anthony also served as a Deputy County Attorney in the civil division for Utah County, assisting the Board of County Commissioners in drafting and amending county ordinances, negotiating sensible contracts among various cities, governmental entities, and businesses, and advocating for the needs of the people.
Anthony is a lifelong Republican committed to protecting the unalienable, God-given rights of life, liberty, property, and the pursuit of happiness. He has always had a goal to serve those around him and believes that being your representative will allow him to use his skills to help strengthen the people of the west side.
